A French man and a Tupi

Set in 1568 when several European countries were competing to control Brazil, a French explorer is captured by native Tupinambas. He will then live among them for eight months before he is to be ceremoniously killed and eaten. Quick zooms and long and medium shots contribute to the film’s documentary feel. Set in the distant past, the film is an allegorical reference to the evictions of indigenous tribes from their native land in modern-day Brazil. - JCRR, Cine Las Americas
